automatic switch to manual tool changer

I have been wondering if it is possible for Masso to accept a manual tool change when a tool needed is not on the list of tools...

 

for example, if i have an 8 tool magazine and my code calls for tool 9, it automatically goes to the Manual tool change position for it to be inserted by an operator....

 

Only an idea...

right now you can only use the tools as per the tools list or manually load all the tools. We can look into adding this logic as this should not be a lot of work, let's see if others have the same requirements and then we can put this on priority.

one application could be the use of a probe, i have a 9 tool magazine and would not like to sacrifice one spot for a probe, with this new logic, as soon as you request for a probe, it could accept it manually....

 

 

By the way, the new firmware removed the green indicator at the bottom of the screen for the touch plate....
